Long known for the Golden Age designs played by Chicago businessmen on holiday, Milwaukee came into its own with Tuckaway Country Club and other representatives during the late ‘60s. The design, from Dick Nugent and Ken Killian, embodied the rising trends in golf course architecture for the area, utilizing large bunkers and water hazards, as well as thin fairways to place a premium on accuracy.
The course would go on to host the Greater Milwaukee Open a few years after it opened, challenging the city’s best accordingly. Over time, the club has worked to maintain its championship caliber. Despite working with a relatively thin piece of property, Jeffrey Brauer and other renovators have managed to stretch the course to more than 7,200 yards. A par on the long closing par four, with its boomerang-type green will be well-earned, along with most of your other pars on the day.
